News Announcement Summer 2003
Mayor Ken Livingston appointed Ron Ramdin to serve on the Mayor's Commission on African and Asian Heritage
(MCAAH). It is, of course, a great honour to be a member of such a pioneering project, a Heritage Strategic
initiative that will play a ground-breaking role in establishing landmark partnerships and a programme for
action that will address the deficit of effective representation, preservation and interpretation of African
and Asian Heritage. The Report and Recommendations of this High Profile Commission will guide and in time
radically transform perception and attitudes towards heritage in London and in Britain as a whole.

"We should like to add that Mr Ramdin's work represents a remarkable scholarly odyssey of an individual
working in his own time and without the benefit of supervision. Far from cutting corners he has been
truly adventuous and ingenious in discovering new sources and adding new dimensions to his chosen subject
matter. He has shown great patience in rounding out and finishing off his research. His writing has
commendably used a form of address which because of its openness, its lucidity and its grace shold generate
the envy of professional historians because of its accessibility for the more general interested reader.
